Hi there, and welcome to my project to "uncut" Black Mesa! Black Mesa was a crowning achievement for modding for sure, but it felt like it was lacking a little in some areas, particularly Surface Tension. For those of you that were not aware, Black Mesa's version of Surface Tension cut out a map from the original which was integral to the story's progression. Its replacement felt rushed and poorly implemented. My mod attempts to add that little something back into the game. I took the liberty of re-adding the cut chapters from Surface Tension as I feel their omission strongly harmed the story and really damaged the tone of Forget About Freeman. I've given them the same treatment Black Mesa gave everything else. This mod currently adds 40 - 50 minutes of gameplay and story to Surface Tension, improving the Black Mesa experience and it's overall narrative. It integrates seamlessly with the Black Mesa campaign too, just like it should. Why not give it a whirl?

The final release candidate for Surface Tension Uncut. The release after this will be the final one, after which I will stop working on this mod. Please, let me have all the feedback you'd like to give so I can make the next (final) version, the absolute best.

"The file you have selected (STUncut1RC2Hotfixed.zip) is not available via any mirrors. Please check back shortly as our servers update every 5 minutes." It has been like this since yesterday. I can't download it. I wonder if there is any other site I can download it from..
